Hi there, I can give you my opinion in about 6 weeks, have been to Shangri La 3 time in the past 2 years and are headed to Outrigger at Easter....

The beach is good at the Shangri La as it the sand is not too rough and the water is usually quite warm.

I believe there is a 'marine protected area' reasonably close by that has been suggested on here before as having excellent snorkelling. I'm sure someone here will be able to offer advice on where it is and what arrangements you'll need to make to get there.

bulla!! have just come back from fiji and stayed at the shangri la... there is amazing snorkelling off the beach . you can also take the glass bottom boat out and snorkel further out...we have been very impressed... we also did the "salad bowl and cave tour" which i strongly recommend for a traditional fijiian experience. your 3 year old could possibly manage this tour however the resort offers great babysitting...enjoy!!
